    Keep them coming dude! I'm enjoying them so much. I've almost got the first comic book drawn from one of your outlines. Now It might be quite a while cause I want to have at least 10 made before I start coloring them and getting them more art quality lookin then just pencil line drawings. I wouldn't look good. I want to get me a digital Art Pad so I can draw them that way and be able to color them quickly then having to put map colors to paper.
    Digital art is more better lookin then pencil but still I enjoy drawing on paper mostly cause I've never drawn on a pad before. Oh I was going to ask.
    Do you have like a note book that you are keeping these all in? Cause I would like to know if you would be able to point out an outline you've done that has to do with Snuffy and Big Bird throughout the whole outline? Cause I would love that to me my next comic I would start on. Like I had said before I'm not going in order on your outline (as in picking the ones I want to comic book style) and just randomly picking. I had seen one that I liked but I wanted to know if there's one I haven't seen another outline of Snuffy and Big Bird. Peace out and talk to you when I can.

    Hi! I just went through a few pages on this thread, and outlines 43, 44, 46, 49, 56, 61, 65, 73, 85 and 99 feature scenes with Big Bird and Snuffy. There isn't one that revolves entirely around them, but hopefully I will get around to writing one.

    Feel free to browse those outlines I mentioned, starting on the third page of this thread. Maybe you'll be interested in reading earlier outlines like those, and perhaps inspired to create some more comics! Good luck, and have fun drawing. Can't wait to see a few of these in the future.

    Thank you for the help. I've choose one that I really did enjoy. The Disco Party one. Really stood out to me. The other ones like you said didn't really center around them but this one kinda did. Thanks Again. Peace out!
